The Non-Dual Matthew: 10:34

10:34

“Do not think I have come to bring peace to the earth.  I have not come to bring peace but a sword.”


There are things we must pare away,
cruelty
egotism
greed
the list will go on and on
and
if you think you are any one of them
you will fear the sword.

I prefer to think of Yeshua’s blade
as a set of nice sharp pruning shears,
nipping away that which no longer serves to
create ripe fruit
or like the clippers that cut through
sheep wool
freeing them,
letting them leap about naked of that burden
so that others may
in turn
be warm.
